ArtistSarah Walker – mezzo soprano Roger Vignoles – piano
Reviews"Sarah Walker is the ideal singer to act as the good companion on such a musical ramble. She always sings sense: or rather, her singing seems to start from the premise that people are to be sung to and not at, and that the right and natural approach to such songs as these is to assume that they involve sensible words for sensible people."
